This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of up to 8 people of a similar standard
  • Contact details are emailed
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everybody!
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls).
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a certificate and tennis prizes
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Getting started

New players will need to complete the player questionnaire before they can join a round. Once you’ve signed up, and for returning players you can join any of the upcoming rounds above.

For everything you need to know before you get started see the FAQs and review the Rules and Regulations, which all players agree to adhere to when playing in the leagues.

If there is anything else you need help with get in contact with Nigel, Sally and the team who will be happy to help!

Player Comments:

  • "Zoran clearly technically the better player and it was very much a case of Zoran - Winner or Zoran - Error as GM scrambled from the back of the court to keep the ball in play. Zoran looked to be getting the upper hand after winning the second set. However, a mix up regarding a court double booking stifled his momentum and he fell 4-0 down in the 3rd set, a deficit which he would never quite recover. Thanks for the game! George"  -- George
Reveal CommentGeorge Milligan bt Stephen Brown (Jun 25) 6-2, 7-6 (7-5)

Player Comments:

  • "Sunday morning match at Hornfair. GM started strongly and was clinical at the net taking the first set 6-2. The second set was much more even, with Steve's ground strokes starting to dominate and errors creeping into GM'a game. The second could have gone either way but GM won on a tight tie-break. Thanks for the game Steve. "  -- George
Reveal CommentAlastair Kidner bt Zoran Bokan (Jun 20) 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (8-6), 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "A frankly ridiculously close match played out over 1hr 58mins in 30 degree heat down in Charlton. Zoran took hold of the first set early on with good ground shots to break serve, but Al fought back to lead the set and had set points on his own serve at 6-5. Zoran came back again however, breaking serve and then controlling the tie break to win the first set. The second set was a topsy turvy affair, with both players struggling to hold serve. Zoran stole a march towards the end of the set and had match points to win it at 6-5, but ultimately couldn't quite get over the line with Al seeing the better of good fortune. Al took a lead in the tie break and although Zoran fought back to get level, Al managed to sneak over the line 8-6."
  • "The final set couldn't quite live up to the quality and tension of the first 2 sets, as both players tired. Al broke early to lead 3-0 and although the rest of the set went to serve, Al ultimately saw the match out. The bottom line was undoubtedly that Zoran didn't deserve to lose. Great game all round!" Alastair
Reveal CommentTerry Marshall bt Alastair Kidner (Jun 12) 7-5, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "A high quality game on the whole, with both players at least satisfied with their performances on the day. Playing on Blackheath in almost ideal, if slightly overcast, conditions, the first set went with serve until the final game. Both players made occasional double faults but must have been serving 60-70% first serves in, which meant for a tight set until Al's serve finally allowed Terry to move in for the kill in the final game. A less interesting, more one-sided second set followed, as Terry stole into a 3-0 lead and remained in front as Al's serve faltered towards the end in yet another match. Terry's first serve in particular was excellent at digging him out of trouble, with at least 6 aces across the 2 sets. Well played Terry!" Al
Terry Marshall bt Matthew Tonry (Jun 9) 6-3, 7-5
Reveal CommentGeorge Milligan bt Alastair Kidner (Jun 8) 6-4, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Playing in the English summer can bring it's challenges. The match started in still yet cloudy conditions and over the course of the two sets we experienced, rain, wind, sun and fittingly finished the match with the backdrop of a full rainbow across Greenwich Park. Alistair and I had incredibly similar styles, both looking to attack the net, whilst both holding back on ground strokes to prevent easy errors. For most of the first set there was nothing to split us with both of us playing good solid points, however in the end I snuck the first set 6 - 4. In the second set a few more errors crept into Alistair's game as I improved my first serve percentage and started to hold serve more comfortably winning set 2, 6- 2" George
  • "A good game in fairly mild conditions in Greenwich park, this match started off fairly evenly but ended up in a comfortable win for George. An even start to the first set saw George steal a march mid-way through the set. Although service games were never fully in the bag for either player George saw out the set confidently, which saw him start the second set with a bang also. With Al's serve gradually declining and George's shot making improving (particularly with his cross-court backhand on song) the second set ended up being more one-sided, with the result never in doubt. Well played and thanks for the game George!" Alastair
